Standard Liege is said to be asking around £1.5 million for Nicolas Raskin this month..
Rangers are keen to sign the 21-year-old to bolster Michael Beale’s squad, but an initial bid was turned down. According to the Scottish Sun, the Light Blues”six figure’ bid fell ‘well short’ of Liege’s €2 million asking price.
Rangers are expected to make another offer before the January transfer window closes next week. Raskin, who is out of contract in the summer, is said to be keen on moving to Glasgow, and he is still training with the reserves after falling out with former Celtic manager Ronny Deila. The Belgian youth international, who has played against Rangers in Europe, is regarded as a promising prospect who would add depth to Rangers’ midfield..
Todd Cantwell is Beale’s only signing this window, but the Gers manager is also interested in Swansea City winger Morgan Whittaker.
Beale confirmed his interest in Raskin last week, adding: “He is a good player, to be fair.
“A player I recall fondly from our time together in Standard Liege…
He didn’t play in the first leg against Rangers because Kemar Roofe scored an incredible goal, but he did play in the second leg.
So he’s a player I’m familiar with, a very good player who is out of contract in the summer and is attracting a lot of interest.
“There is interest from us, but I’m sure there is interest from a number of clubs..
